Need help choosing a budget z87 board

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I'm debating on whether which budget z87 board I should get to upgrade my aging p55 system. My budget is around NZD$300 (roughly USD$235) since I live in New Zealand.

I'm planning on getting either a ASROCK Z87-EXTREME4, ASUS GRYPHON Z87, GIGABYTE GA-Z87-D3HP or a ASUS Z87-A. However I am open to any other suggestions.

I also plan on getting either a 4770k or 4670k along with a reasonably price air cooler and SSD. I'd be reusing most components already in my sigrig.

The Gigabyte -D3HP doesn't support SLI, so take note if you're ever considering a 2-card setup. If that's not a problem, it should be the least-expensive of the four models you listed.
